Businesses, boats, securities...

This recent post by Marshall Chambers looks at personal property and the issue of security interests under the new Personal Property Securities Act (Cth).  I suspect that we will hear more of this Act as it settles in.  It seems to have faced a few teething problems in terms of reliability of the register system in its first weeks of operation. It will be interesting to see if any disputes arise out of this, and how they will be resolved.

Getting in (to practice) and staying in... How hard can it be?

And meanwhile, in the world of cultural capital, I posted as a guest on Amicae Curiae recently on what women - and men - wear to work and whether it matters.  Personally, I believe it does matter.  Simon McKay has posted this week too on cultural capital (though he doesn't use the term) in terms of entry to the profession.  See what you think.
